Porcelain Veneers in East Kilbride

Are you self-conscious about the shape, size, colour or position of your teeth? Don’t worry – many of our patients are too but there’s no need — why not consider porcelain veneers to reshape your smile?

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain designed to recreate the natural look of your teeth while strengthening your existing teeth in a way that is comparable to your original tooth enamel.

What can porcelain veneers fix?

Porcelain veneers can be used to fix all sorts of worries about your smile, particularly in situations where braces aren’t suitable or practical.

If you have chipped, misaligned, missing, worn or discoloured/stained teeth porcelain veneers are an ideal, long-lasting option for achieving a smile you are proud of.

What is involved in getting porcelain veneers?

Getting porcelain veneers is a fairly quick and painless dental treatment that is very popular with customers. Your natural tooth remains almost entirely intact in the process.

Veneers must be custom made to fit your exact tooth shape – or the shape you want to have – so you’ll have an initial consultation lasting around 20 minutes where we will take impressions and make decisions on how your porcelain veneers will fix your teeth. After this a review appointment will be organised to ensure you are happy with the planned changes.

When you’ve decided you are ready to go ahead, you’ll be invited into our practice for another simple procedures lasting another 90 minutes – a small piece of your original tooth enamel is removed to make room for the thin layer of porcelain. Following impressions that are sent to our specialist Laboratory we will make you temporary veneers. We allow between 5-7 days for the lab to make your bespoke veneers.

The veneers are cemented in position with light-sensitive resin between your original tooth and the porcelain veneer using a special curing light. You might experience some sensitivity for a few days but this will disappear very soon thereafter

After your initial treatments, you will be invited back for a follow up appointment to check how your porcelain veneers are working for you and if you’re having problems, we’ll do what we can to help.

How do I maintain porcelain veneers?

The good news is that you maintain your porcelain veneers much like your original teeth – regularly brush and floss as usual and avoid putting any unnecessary stresses on your teeth, like biting your fingernails or opening beer bottles with your teeth!

Later on, you can return to us to have your veneers specially cleaned for that extra special gleam.
